Tracer SummitTM

Building Automation System

August 2003




The Tracer Summit building automation system (BAS) provides building control through a single, integrated system. A building's climate, lighting, scheduling, energy consumption, and other controllable features can all be programmed and managed by Tracer Summit. A Tracer Summit building automation system consists of building control units (BCUs) and PC Workstations with Tracer Summit software. BCUs provide centralized building control through communication to building equipment, such as heating, ventilating, and airconditioning (HVAC) equipment. A building operator uses either a PC Workstation or the operator display (touch screen) on the BCU to perform system operator tasks. The PC Workstation communicates to BCUs over a dedicated Ethernet (ISO/IEC 8802-3) or ARCNET (ANSI 878.1) local area network (LAN), or on a Transmission Control Protocol/Internet protocol (TCP/IP) compatible network. Remote access to the system is available using either a modem in the BCU or an Internet connection with a Tracer Summit Web Server. The PC Workstation can communicate using up to one network connection and two dialup connections simultaneously. Tracer Summit software turns complex requirements into simple, consistent, reliable operations. Tracer Summit can control any type of HVAC equipment, but gives the additional benefits of an Integrated Comfort system when it is linked with Trane HVAC equipment. In addition, Tracer Summit can also connect to other building systems such as fire alarms and lab hood controls. Tracer Summit PC Workstation software is available with three add-on software packages: Tracer 100/Tracker Communications Package, Building Management Package, and Enterprise Management Package. For more information, see PC Workstation additional capabilities on page 10. The following products that are companions to Tracer Summit are also available to meet ever-increasing building management needs: Tracer Summit Energy Services and Tracer Summit Tenant Services.

Features and benefits

The Tracer Summit system is designed to provide solutions needed by building owners and daily operators. The system can be quickly installed, programmed, and commissioned to run reliably. A tested user interface combined with a series of pre-engineered system applications makes this possible. The applications work together to maximize the comfort of people in the building, while minimizing energy use. These tasks include: · · · · · · Viewing the status of the building Changing setpoints Viewing and modifying schedules Responding to alarms Viewing historical report information Performing timed overrides Tracer Summit Users Network The Tracer Summit Users Network is a subscription-based Web site designed to assist Tracer Summit system owners and operators. Members log on to to learn more about their Tracer Summit system through articles, frequently asked questions (FAQs), and access to GCC technical support resources. Members can also upgrade their system with service packs and version upgrades. Daily operator training Daily operators training provides up to four hours of training, complete with user evaluations and certification. This program can be used for offline training and can also be accessed from within Tracer Summit as a user tutorial.

Ease of operation

The daily operator is the most critical user of the system. Extensive usability testing helps make Tracer Summit PC Workstation software intuitive and easy to use. End-users in a laboratory environment test preliminary software. If software functions prove difficult to use, they are refined until testers can more easily perform daily tasks.

The daily operator accesses these tasks by clicking a toolbar button located at the top of the Tracer Summit system window (see Figure 1). Online help PC Workstation software includes a powerful online help system for assistance with system functions and editor and dialog windows.

Figure 1. View building status in Tracer Summit




Ease of service

The optional Rover service tool can be launched from Tracer Summit software to identify problems, test functionality, change configuration, create and edit programming, and monitor status information for Comm5 unit controllers on the system. From an operator on site, to a technician several miles away using a remote connection, the combination of Tracer Summit software and a Rover service tool provide the data and functionality required to fully and conveniently service the building automation system.

Timed override

As a part of the Area Control application, the timed override feature enables building occupants and management staff to override HVAC and lighting equipment to an occupancy status. They can perform overrides from the zone sensor, the BCU operator display, the Tracer Summit PC Workstation software, or the Tracer Summit Web Server (see the Timed Override button in Figure 2).

Indoor air quality control

Indoor air quality is an issue of rising importance from the perspectives of comfort as well as governmental regulation and liability. Tracer Summit intelligently monitors and maintains indoor air quality. When used in conjunction with Trane Traq dampers, Tracer Summit can adjust the intake of outdoor air to ensure compliance with ASHRAE standards.

Variable-air-volume air system (VAS)

The Tracer Summit variable-air-volume air system (VAS) control coordinates airhandling units and VAV boxes within a building. VAV units are assigned to the air-handling unit that supplies air to them. A VAS control starts up and shuts down the system to assure proper static pressure control. Energy saving applications, including static pressure optimization and ventilation optimization, are available as standard VAS control features.

Custom programming

A powerful custom programming language (CPL) allows system customizing for specific applications. Typically, CPL routines are created to sequence equipment, calculate setpoints and values, and perform shutdown sequences.

Chiller plant control

The Tracer Summit chiller plant control application provides intelligent control and comprehensive monitoring of system components, including: · Multiple chillers · Related pumps and valves · Cooling towers and ice tanks The chiller plant control application balances system efficiency and equipment runtime to optimize system performance. The application also provides status information that can help with troubleshooting. The status information indicates what is happening in the chiller plant as well as what to expect next, based on current operating conditions. The chiller plant control program is suitable for both comfort and industrial applications, as well as control sequences including thermal storage and dual-fuel chiller systems.

Managing multiple facilities

To assist in managing multiple facility locations, the Tracer Summit Enterprise Management Package includes utilities that help the daily operator work more efficiently. For example, a typical task is making the same or similar changes to

Figure 2. Schedule recurring tasks

Timed Override button

Area control

Area control coordinates HVAC equipment and lighting for a specific area of the building. Unit controllers and binary outputs are assigned as members of a common area, which makes it easy to change setpoints, do scheduling, and perform overrides at the PC Workstation.




time-of-day schedules across multiple locations. The Enterprise Management Package offers the ability to perform global schedule changes, which means that one simple schedule change can be duplicated across an entire enterprise or group of facilities.

Advanced alarming

With the Building Management Package and the Enterprise Management Package, Tracer Summit also offers a utility to schedule after-hours forwarding of alarms to different persons by e-mail. This utility closely models how an afterhours and weekend call center is scheduled. Once the alarm message has been received, the on-call person can utilize the powerful filtering features of the Tracer Summit alarm and event log to assist in troubleshooting any equipment or system issues with the particular facility in question.

The Building Management Package and the Enterprise Management Package also allow for flexible scheduling of system administrative tasks to occur during times when the normal system operator is not at work, for instance at night. Certain tasks such as gathering report and alarm data from the remote facilities can be scheduled to occur at a convenient time (see Figure 2) or when the telephone rates are the lowest if dial-up connections are used.

area, and then clicking the Schedule button on the task bar (see Figure 3): Schedules can be used for: · Keeping the equipment running at minimal energy-use levels on weekends and holidays · Creating special schedules for times in which the schedule needs to deviate from the normal one, such as for one day; the normal schedule can be returned to the following day · Performing optimal start and stop of equipment to optimize energy use while maintaining comfort requirements · Changing setpoints at specific times of day

Time-of-day scheduling

Time-of-day scheduling is one of a facility's most important energy-saving strategies. Making sure that equipment runs only when it is needed ensures that energy usage is minimized. Schedules for the equipment serving a specific area of the building are accessed by viewing the graphic for that

Figure 3. Time-of-day scheduling editor




Engineered smoke control

Tracer Summit software can be used to control an automatic smoke-control system. When used with a fire alarm control panel (provided by other suppliers), Tracer Summit can help protect occupants by controlling the flow of smoke in an emergency. In addition to smoke control, with a firefighter's control panel, the firefighter can see the status of smoke control and implement overrides as required. Tracer Summit is UL-864-UUKL-listed for this application. For details, see the Engineered Smoke Control System for Tracer Summit applications guide, BAS-APG001-EN.

The goal of any interoperable system is to provide an economical, reliable, and repeatable solution. By basing Tracer Summit on open standard protocols, this goal is easily accomplished. The native communication between the BCU and PC Workstation is based on BACnet-- the ASHRAE/ANSI 135 standard--and ENV-1805-1/ENV-13321-1. Communication to Trane's Comm5 Tracer controllers is based on the EIA-709.1 (LonTalk®) standard. The use of open standard protocols assures long-term support across a broad number of suppliers. Trane has experience in providing integrated, interoperable solutions on thousands of installations. These range from simple HVAC solutions that combine Tracer controllers with variable frequency drives, to sophisticated installations that combine many building sub-systems. For more information, contact a Trane representative. Ask for a copy of the Interoperable Solutions brochure (BAS-SLB004-EN) and the Connections CD (BAS-CMC002-EN). BACnet support An open, standard protocol is essential for building control system integration. The Tracer Summit system uses the BACnet protocol to facilitate communication between Tracer Summit BCUs and PC Workstations as well as a means to integrate products and systems, including fire panels, fume hoods, and non-Trane BAS or HVAC equipment. Trane is a member of the BACnet Manufacturers Association. For more details on BACnet, refer to LonTalk® support The BCU includes native support for LonTalk®-based controllers. The Trane implementation of LonTalk® is referred to as Comm5 and utilizes twisted-pair physical media. In addition to Tracer controllers, any LonTalk®-compatible controller can be included on a Comm5 link. These devices must use FTT-10A transceivers and support LonTalk® standard network variable types (SNVTs). This allows for easy integration of devices such as variable frequency drives, lighting, security, humidifiers, and boilers.

Trane is a sponsor of the LonMark® Interoperability Association. For more details on LonMark,® refer to Other protocol support While support for open protocols is the preferred method of integrating systems and system components, gateways are another method that can be used for this purpose. A gateway translates one set of communication rules to another, allowing devices that use different protocols to pass data to each other. The use of these gateways is the ideal solution to: · Interface with controllers such as meters, variable frequency drives, fire alarm systems, and security · Provide HVAC data out to a proprietary BAS, or to a SCADA system for industrial applications The Tracer Summit communications bridge is a gateway that enables a wide variety of devices that use the MODBUS RTU protocol to connect to a Tracer Summit building automation system using BACnet. The bridge can also be programmed to interface to other common communication protocols.


Existing Tracer systems can easily migrate to the current technologies of Tracer Summit. Upgrading a Tracer 100 system provides benefits including network communications, state-of-theart user interface, and the ability to connect to next-generation controllers. For facilities where system upgrades are prohibitive, Tracer Summit also allows integration of Tracer 100 and Tracker systems. Tracer Summit can communicate with most of the controllers in Tracer 100 and Tracker systems. The integration of legacy systems into the Tracer Summit workstation allows the facility or enterprise operator to manage all facilities with a single workstation.

System integration

Tracer Summit provides open system options that provide the following capabilities: · Allows easy integration of equipment and auxiliary systems into a single system, or multiple buildings into a single network, which can be operated from a single location. · Assures competitive bidding for system additions and modifications. · Provides an easy method to connect Trane equipment and Tracer Summit systems into other BAS or Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems.




System architecture

The Tracer Summit system architecture is highly distributed (Figure 4). Control can occur at the appropriate system level to ensure integrity. Figure 4. A typical example of Tracer Summit system architecture The three levels of control are: · Operator interface · Building control · Unit control




Operator interface

Operators have three interface options for managing their building automation systems: · PC Workstation · Operator display · Tracer Summit Web Server Alarm processing and event log The daily operator must be able to deal effectively with abnormal conditions. When the system detects such a condition, it routes the alarm to the appropriate PC Workstation(s), pagers, and e-mail addresses. At the PC Workstation, alarms and other system events are stored in the alarm and event log. The log can be viewed by clicking a button on the Tracer Summit task bar or selecting a command from the menu. If another application is in use when an abnormal condition occurs, an alarm is indicated in the task bar at the bottom of the screen. The event log displays critical data about the alarm: which building it is from and whether it requires an acknowledgment. Critical alarms can be set up with messages and graphics that can aid in troubleshooting problems. A series of easy-to-use filters can be used to show only desired events: For example, only alarms from certain buildings or alarms received at a certain time can be displayed in the event log. Graphics Tracer Summit uses graphics as a means of viewing and moving through the system, much like walking through the building. Graphics show data related to building environments, including climate, lighting, and other controllable operations. Graphics can be used to change setpoints and override equipment operation. Putting graphics in groups makes it possible to move logically from place to place within a building. Target buttons can be added to graphics to provide links to related sources. The navigation tree--a hierarchical, treestyle representation showing the relationship of all graphics for a facility (see Figure 1 on page 4)--provides a way to move between graphics and buildings. The navigation tree is a standard part of every system and can be easily modified while the system is online. Forward, Back, and Home buttons on the menu bar provide another way to move among graphics. Graphics library and graphics editing A library of standard graphics representing all Trane equipment and applications is included in the Tracer Summit software. Standard graphics provide a visual representation of equipment along with relevant equipment information. These standard graphics have been tested to provide a consistently high level of quality and usability. Custom graphics can also be created by incorporating visual elements from the building, such as floor plans or exterior views from CAD drawings, into standard graphics. Custom graphics can also include digital photography and animated images such as a rotating fan. These elements can be included on graphics: · Any data available in the system as a numerical or text value · Analog values that can change colors based on deviation from a desired value for quick recognition of operational issues · User-defined static text in a wide choice of fonts and colors · Animation using binary images, animated GIF or video (AVI) files , · Hyperlinked text and images that can be added to move between graphics · Hyperlinks to any Windows-compatible files or applications (for example, Adobe Acrobat documents, Excel spreadsheets, and external Web sites) · Multiple graphic images that conform to the industry standard JPEG, GIF or , BMP formats, in addition to the library of HVAC equipment images included with the Tracer Summit software package · Charting of historical trends or realtime values · User controls including push buttons, check boxes, drop-down list boxes, and entry fields

PC Workstation

The Tracer Summit PC Workstation software provides a graphical user interface for setting up, operating, and modifying the building automation system. This interface along with the use of Microsoft Windows and Internet Explorer make building operation as easy as surfing the World Wide Web. Tracer Summit PC Workstation software can be run on a PC located at the building site or from a remote location. The software can also be used to connect to and monitor operations for multiple building sites. For example, a user can view the status of a chiller located in the next room, while modifying the schedule for a building that is across the city or around the world. Tracer Summit PC Workstation software runs under Microsoft Windows NT SP4, Windows 98 SE, Windows ME, Windows 2000, or Windows XP operating systems. Operating with Windows offers the flexibility of running other popular applications for communications and office productivity. See Hardware requirements on page 16 for more PC Workstation details. The Tracer Summit PC Workstation is the most common interface for accessing building automation systems. The primary features are described in this section.




Data, text, setpoint overrides, and other information can be added to graphics by using the Graphics editor that is part of the software package. This editor works while the system is online and allows any user with proper security to create or modify graphics. Tools available in the Graphics editor can align graphical elements, determine which elements appear on top, and perform cut, copy, and paste functions. Reports and trends Viewing current as well as previous system operations provides invaluable information. The Tracer Summit reports and trends feature provides this ability. Trends can present a variety of sample data at defined intervals to show at a glance the historical and current status of the facility. These trends can be viewed on the screen, printed out, or stored on disk. Standard reports for each piece of Trane equipment provide a valuable source of record-keeping and troubleshooting data. In addition, standard reports are provided for ASHRAE Guideline 3, Monitoring of large tonnage chillers. Finally, custom reports can be defined for any desired values, such as energy usage or run-time reporting.

PC Workstation system utilities In addition to operations and configuration, the Tracer Summit PC Workstation software also provides utilities for management of the system. · Save and restore When connected to a network of BCUs, the PC Workstation software constantly analyzes database status and updates information on the PC hard drive. Database changes made by other workstations are automatically reflected at each PC without the need for a central server. If a BCU goes offline, the PC Workstation software automatically reloads its database without the need for intervention. The system database can be archived or backed up for local or offsite storage of data in case it is needed for restoring the system in the event of a problem. · Security A sophisticated password system protects the Tracer Summit system from unauthorized access. Each operator logs on to the system and only has access to selected applications, editors, objects, and properties. An operator with proper security can access all levels of the system and has the ability to alter passwords. · Diagnostics Tracer Summit constantly evaluates all of the system parameters and reports problems to the operator. Problems ranging from a communication failure due to a broken wire to the failure of a sensor are automatically detected and reported. · Network management functions The Tracer Summit PC Workstation software includes field panel reset and restore, abnormal condition monitoring, network routing, and BACnet support. · Configuring controllers The Tracer Summit PC Workstation software can be used to configure and troubleshoot controllers found on Trane equipment. This setup consists of setpoints, minimum on and off times, and other user-defined parameters.

PC Workstation additional capabilities Tracer Summit PC Workstation software has three add-on software packages that provide additional capabilities. With the Tracer 100/Tracker Communication Package, the PC Workstation can communicate with, and receive alarms from, Trane's legacy system controllers. The Building Management Package makes it easy to schedule site communication and database back-ups during after-hours operation. This package also allows scheduling of alarms, in the form of e-mail messages, to appropriate personnel. E-mails can be sent to any device that can receive email messages. The Enterprise Management Package includes all of the features of the other two add-on packages and also allows changes to be applied across multiple locations. In addition, the package allows multiple PCs to share data, the event log, and graphics with a central PC.




Operator display

The optional Tracer Summit BCU operator display provides an easy-to-use interface for: · Viewing equipment and system status information · Making changes to time-of-day schedule · Changing system setpoints · Viewing the alarm and event log · Performing timed overrides The operator display is an intuitive, touch-screen display that is located on the front of the Tracer Summit BCU. The operator display can also show graphical images indicating the type of equipment or area that is being controlled by the Tracer Summit system. The BCU operator display offers a way to make daily operation changes to the system without the need for a PC Workstation at the facility. For a facility with multiple BCUs, information for the entire Tracer Summit system can be accessed through a single operator display.

Tracer Summit Web Server

The Tracer Summit Web Server provides the ability to operate a Tracer Summit building automation system (BAS) from any PC using a Web browser, such as Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator. The Web Server accesses real-time system data from the Tracer Summit system and sends it to the Web browser interface. This allows access to system information from within a facility or from a remote location anywhere in the world using a Web browser rather than Tracer Summit software. With a Web Server installed on a Tracer Summit system, any PC with a Web browser can be used to: · View graphical information about a facility, change setpoints, and perform overrides · View and change schedules · View and acknowledge alarms · View historical information · Access graphics that have already been created for a Tracer Summit site The Web Server can be easily added to a new or existing Tracer Summit installation. It is compatible with Tracer Summit installations Version 13 and higher with Ethernet, Ethernet IP or , ARCNET connections.




Building control

The Tracer Summit BCU is an intelligent field panel that communicates with unit controllers. Unit controllers provide stand-alone control of HVAC equipment. The BCU scans all unit controllers to update information and coordinate building control, including building subsystems such as chiller plants. A site may have multiple BCUs and PC Workstations connected over a local area network (LAN). The LAN allows these varied components to be managed as one system. The BCU is housed in a protective enclosure that allows for easy access to the circuit board (see Figure 5).

Optional communication card slots

Three card slots in the BCU provide the flexibility to configure one or all of the following: · EIA-232 communication card or modem · Ethernet or ARCNET node interface card · ARCNET hub card(s)
